Student Loan Forgiveness: Paid Off Loan? You May Still Be Eligible For Up To $20,000 Refund

Some 43 million Americans will benefit from President Joe Biden’s plans to cancel student loans. Of those, some 20 million will see their debt wiped out completely.

The plan dismisses up to $20,000 in student loan for Pell Grant recipients and $10,000 for federal loan holders. To qualify, individuals need 2020 or 2021 income of less than $125,000 or $250,000 combined household income.

Applications for loan forgiveness will be available by mid-October and, once that is complete, the borrower can expect to see the loan adjustment in 4-6 weeks, before the scheduled payment restart of Dec. 31st.

Loan payments have been on hold since March 2020, the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The debt relief plan only applies to borrowers who currently have a loan balance but any borrower who made a payment on their student loans since the start of the moratorium is eligible for a refund.

Borrowers are advised to contact their loan services to request their payment be refunded. To do so, eligible borrowers will have to request their balance be restored and then apply the forgiveness to that amount.

The amount of the relief is capped at the level of the outstanding debt, the department noted, so there won’t be a refund for the difference of the restored amount and the $10,000 or $20,000 allowed.

NEWS RELEASE: OOD to Host “The Employers’ Reasonable Accommodation Handbook” Webinar Series for Employers

(COLUMBUS, OH) — Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) today announced “The Employers’ Reasonable Accommodation Handbook,” a six-part webinar series to help employers identify ways to provide reasonable accommodations for all disability types.

“As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives in 1990, I had the honor of voting for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to ensure that individuals with disabilities have equal opportunities to work and participate in all aspects of society,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “Reasonable accommodations are an important part of the ADA, empowering qualified individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions of their jobs.”

“OOD can support employers in maintaining the productivity of individuals with disabilities in the workplace,” said Kevin Miller, OOD Director. “Reasonable accommodations are often surprisingly simple and cost-effective, mutually benefitting both the employer and employee with a disability.”

The webinar series corresponds with Governor DeWine’s Executive Order 2019-03D, which established Ohio as a Disability Inclusion State and Model Employer of Individuals with Disabilities, OOD’s Inclusive Employer Toolkit, and the Governor’s Inclusive Employer Award criteria. The series will conclude with a session on “What Can I Ask and Why” to help employers effectively provide reasonable accommodations and foster disability-inclusive workplaces.
